Page 45 Review by Stephen

"The four-volume Omnibus series along with the two volumes of The Complete Short Stories collect all of Mignola's award-winning HELLBOY stories in chronological order for a definitive reading experience.

"This 416-page volume covers Hellboy's adventures from 1998 to 2005, reprinting 'Conqueror Worm', 'Strange Places', 'Into the Silent Sea', and 'The Right Hand of Doom,' 'Box Full of Evil,' and 'Being Human'."

HELLBOY: STRANGE PLACES contained 'The Third Wish' and 'The Island' which I once reviewed thus:

Hellboy is standing at the edge of the ocean, and, he's told, the crossroads of his life. Five seconds later and he's many leagues under the sea and assaulted by weremaids. Should have taken a left, dude.

Try this book if you like portentous dream sequences, demands with consequences and the chill of the ominous, and we haven't even begun to speak of the art which has, if at all possible, taken another leap. Mike keeps it dark and spooky with the boldest silhouettes in the business, yet opens it up with majestic design and subtle inlay.

Also [perhaps earlier - it's over a decade since I read this]:

Hellboy arrives in Africa, but he's been expected there longer than he's lived, and although the beasts don't want him, the ocean does. Three little wishes for three fishes. Who will be leaving alive?
